San Juan, Puerto Rico, Nov 14, 2017 / 00:23 am
Seven weeks after Hurricane Maria tore through Puerto Rico, the majority of the island is still without power, and many residents are without clean water as well.
While the rebuilding process is slow, Catholic aid groups are working to provide supplies to those who desperately need them.
On Nov. 10, Catholic Charities USA presented $2 million in additional aid to Caritas de Puerto Rico, the Catholic Charities agency on the island.
This money follows the $1.5 million in funds given by Catholic Charities USA shortly after the hurricane struck the island.
